Disposables 004: Moments in time from Whitefish, Montana
Few things compete with the influence that our home mountain and subsequent crew have on us when it comes to our formative years in snowboarding. For Airblaster founders Jesse Grandkoski and Travis Parker, the mountain was Whitefish, Montana, and the crew was the BMSC (Big Mountain Soft Core). This year, Airblaster has returned to Whitefish to film their next month-long film project, March.
Earlier this month we flew to Portland, Oregon to meet up with the Airblaster crew before taking the Amtrak to Whitefish. Our adventure was filled with a hilarious language barrier with our good friends from Airblaster Japan and Weekly of Weird, chest-deep snow every day, and a beyond friendly local population and resort staff. The below photos represent the tip of the iceberg from our time in Montana, so be sure to check back frequently leading up to the release of, March, next fall.
We can’t get enough of the feeling of disposable cameras. It is a combination of having limited exposures, being fast, light, easy to use, and perhaps most importantly the completely unique aesthetic retained in each image. Disposables, is a new photo series featuring photos from our travels. Moments in time from when we hop on a plane until we warily unpack our bags. They aren’t all in focus or properly exposed, and they aren’t all great images; but each and every photo speaks to experience, and the many fragmented moments that together constitute travel and adventure.
